                    From 1911 to 1913, eight thousand Spanish families immigrated from Spain to the Hawaiian Islands. Promises of land and education where broken, nearly all continued to California, many would find their way to the fields and orchards of the San Joaquin Valley. In 1932 they went on strike. With the help of the IWW they took on the establishment, riots, beatings, lynching and the courts finally stopped them in California’s first labor dispute in the fields. This would be the beginnings of the United Farm Workers Union. You can learn more about the Hawaiian Immigration at the https://www.facebook.com/HawaiianSpaniard

                      Dolores Huerta was born on April 10, 1930 in New Mexico. In 1955, Huerta co-founded the Stockton chapter of the Community Service Organization, and in 1960 co-founded the Agricultural Workers Association. In 1962, she co-founded the National Farm Workers Association with Cesar Chávez, which would later become the Unit's Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee. In 1966, she negotiated a contract between the UFWOC and Schenley Wine Company, marking the first time that farmworkers were able to successfully collectively bargain with an agricultural enterprise. In 1965 Huerta directed the UFW’s national grape boycott, taking the plight of the farm workers to the consumers. The boycott resulted in the entire California table grape industry signing a three-year collective bargaining agreement with the United Farm Workers in 1970. She has been highly politically active, lobbying in favor of (and against) numerous California and federal laws. The laws that she supported included: A 1960 bill to permit people to take the California driver's examination in Spanish 1962 legislation repealing the Bracero Program 1963 legislation to extend Aid to Families with Dependent Children to California farmworkers The 1975 California Agricultural Labor Relations Act As an advocate for farmworkers' rights, Huerta has been arrested twenty-two times for participating in non-violent civil disobedience activities and strikes[citation needed]. Huerta's organizing and lobbying efforts are often overshadowed by those of Cesar Chávez , who is revered by many (especially Chicanos)[who?] as the primary figure of the Chicano civil rights movement. She remains active in progressive causes, and serves on the boards of For the American Way and Feminist Majority Foundation. People In September 1988 in front of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel, Huerta was severely beaten by San Francisco Police officers during a peaceful and lawful protest of the policies/platform of then-candidate for president George H.W. Bush. The baton-beating caused significant internal injuries to her torso, resulting in several broken ribs and necessitating the removal of her spleen in emergency surgery. The beating was caught on videotape and broadcast widely on local television news, including the clear ramming of the butt end of a baton into Huerta's torso by one of the helmeted officers. Later, Huerta won a large judgment against the SFPD and the City of San Francisco, the proceeds of which were used in benefit of farm workers. The assault is credited with starting yet another movement to change SFPD crowd-control policies, as well as the manner in which officer discipline is handled.
